Gifts That Do Good

If you haven't already, you've been pulling out your wallet lately to pay for all sorts of presents for the important people in your life. Surely some of the items you picked in the past were huge hits (and hopefully nothing was re-gifted), how about giving Fair Trade gifts going forward? You will be showing your love for artisans and small scale farmers behind the products you give.
As Maggi Carfield, our guest blogger, tells us in her 3-part "Voting With Your Dollars" series, we all get to choose the kind of world we'd like to live in based on the purchases we make. When you shop fairly traded products, you are promoting a more just marketplace; you believe in the Fair Trade Federation's principles and you are saying "Yes" to:
  • Creating Opportunities for Economically and Socially Marginalized Producers
  • Developing Transparent and Accountable Relationships
  • Establishing long-term relationships based on trust and transparency
  • Promoting greater justice in the global economic system
  • Paying promptly and fairly to all producers
  • Supporting safe and empowering working conditions
  • Protecting the rights of children
  • Cultivating Environmental Stewardship, and
  • Respecting producers' cultural identity
